Soggy weather forcing Saturday’s Easter Egg Hunt inside Flaherty Park Community Center

Friday, April 12, 2019 - 3:26pm

Due to the threat of inclement weather, Saturday’s Easter Egg Hunt will be relocated inside the Flaherty Park Community Center, 1226 N. White St.

Doors open at 9:45 a.m., and the festivities get underway at 10 a.m.

Presented by Primrose School of Heritage Wake Forest and Bumgarner & Martin Orthodontics, this free event will be packed full of crafts, games, prizes and a visit from the Easter Bunny.  

This year’s Egg Hunt will include thousands of eggs containing prizes and candy hidden for the following age groups: 3 and younger, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12 and special needs.

Children ages 3 and younger will hunt for eggs beginning at 10 a.m.; ages 4-6 will begin at 10:20 a.m.; ages 7-9 get underway at 10:40 a.m.; and ages 10-12 commence at 11 a.m. An egg hunt for children with special needs will begin at 11:30 a.m.

Registration is not required for the hunts, but participants should come with baskets in hand. Please note: Due to the new location, the Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department must limit each child to six eggs.

The following local businesses and organizations have generously contributed to the 2019 Wake Forest Easter Egg Hunt: Bumgarner & Martin Orthodontics, Primrose School of Heritage Wake Forest, Passanante’s Home Food Services, British Swim School, Vision Martial Arts and Linchpin SEO.
